ANDOVER, Mass., April 14, 2017 — MKS Instruments Inc. has announced the Newport SU100TW-F2K Thermally Compensated Mirror Mount.
The new mount for 25.4-mm optics combines low wavefront distortion mounting with innovative ZeroDrift thermal drift compensation. Newport’s ZeroDrift mounts feature patent-pending kinematic elements that compensate for temperature induced alignment drift, resulting in 85 percent improved optical pointing stability compared to other stainless steel mounts.
Combined with low wavefront distortion retainers that reduce mounting stress on mirrors and avoid optical distortion as well as locking screws, the Newport SU100TW-F2K mirror mount provides long-term stability for demanding scientific experiments and industrial applications.
